John Leo
Is America Crazy?

Underwritten by: Varnum, Riddering, Schmidt & Howlett LLP

 

As evidenced by the acceptance of amazing vulgarity featured on reality TV shows like Fear Factor or punishing small children for teasing under harassment laws or expelling students for pointing a finger at a teacher in a gun-wielding manner, it is obvious that something has gone awry in our culture. Popular columnist and contributing editor at U.S. News and World Report, John Leo will speak on the flight from traditional morality, restraint and common sense to an anything-goes philosophy. Leo’s column “On Society” reflects regularly on the “continuing campaign to make the culture even more deranged.” This humorous yet insightful look at our culture will leave you wondering how our society has gotten so off course and what we can do to straighten it out.
